Design XXXIX.: workingman's model cottage, p. 286
DESIGN XXXIX. WE close this series of designs with a very eco- nomical little cottage, to which we request the at- tention of the workingman who has the means to build himself a snug little home. Less expensive than the one we have just described, (fig. 167,) it is almost as commodious and comfortable, and, with a little piazza over the front door instead of the canopy we have given, it would be almost as picturesque. RooMs.-A small entrance hall A, contains the stairs; it is about 6 by 12 feet, and affords access to the living-room B, iGi by 12 feet, and to the best room C, 10 by 17 feet. D is the kitchen. Fio. 172.-SECOND FLOOR. Fig. 172 exhibits the second floor; E is the stair landing from which all the sleeping-rooms F are entered. ESTIMATE.-BUilt in the cheapest manner, with the best management, this cottage may be finished for a trifle over $300. (286) Fio. 171.-FIRST FLOoR.
